Brigham City Academy

Brigham City acquired the Academy building in 1998 with the intent of facilitating its restoration. In 1999, Brigham City and Utah State University Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning conducted a conceptual planning exercise to produce ideas for the Academy and the surrounding area. In 2007 money was secured to restore the building exterior. In 2013, FFKR Architects was contracted to design the second phase of the restoration project, which restored the second-story ballroom interior; finished the first level with meeting, lobby and instruction rooms; and added a 16,000-square-foot addition with kitchen, restaurant, and support facilities. These changes support the historical building as a convention and reception center for the northern Utah area. The restoration and remodel transformed the dance hall into the Brigham City Academy, a new regional convention center for the community of Brigham City to enjoy.
